Can't get enough..........................
Three artists, ignoring the rules and doing what comes naturally without care to style or sales, cLOUDDEAD is the avant hip-hop coalition of Doseone, why?, and odd nosdam. Their schizophrenic compositions, uninhibited vocal stylings, ambient soundscapes, and polished live show have both impressed and baffled. Life Sucks Die has said their work is "as close as you can get to a description of what doing whippets sounds like." Skater kids claim them as one of their own. Indie kids hear rock's future in their music. Hip-hop heads debate is it or isn't it, and all the while cLOUDDEAD blazes forward without a map or a care. Not just a meeting of the minds, but a blending of three individuals into a new entity, cLOUDDEAD is Mush's most abstract experiment of word and sound.
